Re: Gina's BMW, Iowa City
I have been very pleased with Gina's. They have done all but 2 of the services on my 2005 LT which now has over 171,000 miles on it. I only do my own 6,000 miles service (in other words oil change and final drive lube change) and let them do everything else. They have also had the privilege of doing 2 damage repair jobs (1 very large jack rabbit did $1,800+ damage and 1 hail and wind storm which also blew the bike over while on centerstand $2,900+ damage).
As far as cost goes, have always felt they have been fair for the level of service I have received. Many times I have come in with my own ideas for a repair and they have offered lower priced options, normally I don't listen as I tend to want the best for my toy. One example would be shocks, was offered factory ones at 1/2 the price of Ohlins, but when I asked what shocks were best was honestly informed the Ohlins which I already knew and was willing to pay the price.
It is nice that they are so close, 550 miles one way, it's a perfect reason to do what these bikes do best, travel. Also with that distance there are many different ways to get there, some longer, some faster, some prettier.
